Begin by asking yourself two simple questions. This is recommended by the famed sleep doctor Matthew Walker, PhD, in his book Why We Sleep.
- Do I feel sleepy several hours after waking up in the morning?
*If the answer is “yes,” you are likely not getting sufficient sleep quantity and/or quality.
- Can I function optimally without caffeine before noon?
*If the answer is “no,” then you are most likely self-medicating your state of chronic sleep deprivation.
